Foundation in Hypnotherapy


    I am delighted to have partnered Insightz with The Institute for Clinical Hypnosis (ICH) in London to present their highly successful and accredited Hypnotherapy Foundation Course locally here in Poole.

    ICH Foundation Course in Hypnotherapy 


    » Hypnotherapy is a practical subject and previous academic qualifications are not vital to those wishing to enroll on the Foundation Course. All we ask is that you are interested in the subject and enthusiastic about learning.» The course lasts six days and is spread over three weekends at two weekly intervals.

    The dates for the next course are to be confirmed and will appear here once set.

    Next dates to be confirmed.

    » The course will be held at the RNLI Lifeboat College a short walk from Poole Train Station. Apart from its stunning location, The College offers many facilities including a restaurant, bar and the ability to book on site accommodation for those students travelling from further afield. Please click the link for more information on the RNLI Lifeboat College.

    » A full agenda is packed into these sessions.  A significant part of the course is practical with numerous demonstrations, the remainder being made up of explanations of the theoretical aspects of hypnosis.
